Les Trois Tracy’s
March 28 – May 16, 2017
Featuring work by Tracy Haines, Tracy Wall and Tracy Wilson
Reception: Friday, April 7, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Tracy Haines was raised in Omaha , Nebraska and now lives in Littleton, Colorado with her husband and three children. She studied medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, then practiced Dermatology for a number of years. She retired early to raise her children and pursue her lifelong interests in painting and music.
I paint interesting viewpoints with compelling value and color shapes. Whether a still life, figure, or landscape, my subjects are often familiar while the compositions and unexpected colors offer a unique perspective.
Appealing compositions are everywhere, and they can make strong impressions from afar even before the subject matter is recognized.
Everyday, I feel surrounded by the treasures of life and reflect that in my artwork by empowering others to see the ordinary as extraordinary.
Tracy Wall grew up in the Midwest and has called Colorado home since 1981. She has studied with a number of artists, but finds inspiration everywhere.
After starting at the University of Denver studying Fine Art under the guiding hand of Maynard Tischler, Tracy answered the call to study science (BS in Zoology at CSU), education (MA in Special Education at UNC) and health (MT in Therapeutic Massage at MTIC). She has come full circle and has returned to her first love: the visual arts.
Tracy’s work can be seen in private and corporate collections across the country. See her complete collection at www.TracyWall.com in addition to exhibits through Abend Gallery and Framed Image Gallery.
In her personal time, Tracy enjoys spending time hiking and spending time with her animals.
Tracy Wilson, radiates a genuine love of art which informs all her work. The intuitive grace of her compositions, the elegance and drama of lighting, the finesse with which she handles texture – these are the hallmarks of her work. While best known for her still life paintings, Wilson, who works in oil and pastel, does not limit her subject matter. She enjoys the exploration of mediums, techniques, and subject matter.
Tracy currently segments her time between painting in her private studio and teaching.
“I expect I will always be both an instructor and a student. There is inspiration and artistic evolution that stems from immersing myself in each of these roles,” comments the artist. Ms. Wilson is an active member of Oil Painters of America, Art Students League of Denver, Lakewood Arts Council, and a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado where she also serves as Membership Co-chair.
Wilson, who looks forward to attending the play, “The Robber Bridegroom”, reminds us of a famous quote from Pablo Picasso – “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” What could be better than to be surrounded by an exhibition of beautiful art on your way to watching a wonderful play. Sounds like a perfect night on the town.
